Cesc Fabregas is happy to be joined by former Arsenal teammate Thierry Henry at Serie B Como.

Both Gooners have bought into the club, with Cesc also a player.

He told the Daily Mail: "Thierry was very special as a team-mate. I can only speak so highly of him. I was only 16 when I joined the first team [at Arsenal]. They welcomed me with open arms and I think Thierry was great. He's someone that I look up to.

"It's important for the club. Once I came here I knew they wanted to do something special. They wanted to bring some important guys to the club, to actually make it grow.

"It's a statement from the club that we want to do well. We want this club to grow, to come forward, as quickly as we can, to bring someone of Thierry's stature will be very important.

"Already the players, they speak about it, they're excited. You know when you have someone on board like Thierry. Unconsciously, you will always feel the pressure – the good pressure. You want to give even more."
